I have used the netgear ones... some issues - all plugs must be on the same circuit for "optimal" setup, and if the plugs are on a different DB board it wont work correctly, if the plugs are on a different earth leakage it wont work correctly, if you are using surge plugs it wont work correctly.

so basically if you go from one office to another one, and its on the same DB board, and pref on the same breaker, it will work fine. As soon as you start working on a different circuit its really unreliable!

Rather just run Wireless N+ MIMO with another Access Point on the other side of the house connected via ethernet.

After giving it some thought...
R400 per homeplug vs. R300+- big roll cat5

I think I'll just go and pull cables to each office :p

Thanks for the input. After reading all those issue it can give, I'll keep avoiding them
